Q. 18 B5.0( 3 Votes )

# If 15 cot A=18, find sin A and sec A.

Given: 15 cot A = 8  And we know that, Or  Let,

Side adjacent to angle A =AB = 8k

The side opposite to angle A =BC = 15k

where k is any positive integer

Firstly we have to find the value of AC.

So, we can find the value of AC with the help of Pythagoras theorem

(AB)2 + (BC)2 = (AC)2

(8k)2 + (15k)2 = (AC)2

(AC)2 = 64 k2 +225 k2

(AC)2 = 289 k2

AC =289 k2

AC =±17k

But side AC can’t be negative. So, AC = 17k

Now, we will find the sin θ Side opposite to angle θ = BC = 15k

and Hypotenuse = AC = 17k

So, Now, we know that, The side adjacent to angle θ = AB =8

Hypotenuse = AC =17

So,    Rate this question :
